itRome, Italy

Often referred to as "the Eternal City", Rome is like a living museum which every person should see at least once in their life. The capital of Italy has historic sites from different eras just about around any corner and attracts over 4 million tourists a year. Among the top sights of Rome are without a doubt the Colosseum and the ancient Roman Forum, the iconic Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps, the Pantheon and Piazza Navona to name a few. Moreover, a whole country, Vatican, is set right in the beating heart of Rome!...
  • Day By Day

    Day 1: Arrival to Rome
    Welcome to Rome - one of the most charming and heritage rich cities of Italy. Upon arrival, you are met by your private driver, who transfers you to the hotel for the check-in.

    The rest of the day is at your own leisure to relax after the trip.


    Day 2: Highlights of Rome
    Today you meet your guide at the hotel lobby and embark on a panoramic walking city tour to see the most famous attractions and hidden treasures of the Eternal City. 

    You see the Spanish Steps, the Trevi Fountain, Pantheon, Piazza Navona, the famous Fountain of the Four Rivers, as well as witness the masterpieces by Bernini, Borromini, and many others.

    After the tour, your guide takes you back to the hotel and you have the evening at leisure.


    Day 3: Discovering Ancient Rome
    In the morning after breakfast you meet your guide to discover the famous ancient treasures of the Eternal City on a walking tour. 

    Your first stop today is the iconic Roman Forum, situated on low ground between the Palatine and Capitoline hills, it was the key political, ritual, and civic center of ancient Rome and can be traced 3 thousand years back. Today you can see columns and remains of ancient temples, archs and buildings, such as the Temple of Caesar and the Arch of Septimius Severus, as well as the adjacent Palatine Hill, which was the site of the city’s first settlements. 

    The next place you discover today is Rome's hallmark site - the Colosseum. Originally known by the name of Flavius amphitheatre, it was the biggest and most imposing building of its kind in the Roman world, designed as an arena for the fights of Roman gladiators and could hold up to 70 thousand spectators. 

    After the tour, your guide takes you back to the hotel and you have the evening at leisure.


    Day 4: Vatican Sightseeing
    In the morning after breakfast you meet your guide and have a transfer to the walled enclave and the world’s smallest independent state - Vatican*.

    When inside the Vatican, you visit private apartments of Julius II, Pinecone Courtyard, Gallery of the Maps, Gallery of the Tapestries and Gallery of Candelabra.

    Next, you proceed to the Sistine Chapel, where you have enough time to admire Michelangelo's famous frescoes and learn about the intense relationship between Pope Julius II and Michelangelo that drove the artist to create the greatest work of art the world has ever known.

    After a coffee break, your tour continues in the vast open spaces of St. Peter’s Basilica where you see a stunning Pieta - a world-famous work of Renaissance sculpture by Michelangelo, and Bernini's impressive Papal Canopy, a legacy left to the Basilica by the Barberini family.

    The ending point of your tour is St. Peter’s Square, where you can admire Michelangelo's Dome and the gorgeous colonnades designed by Bernini.

    After the tour of the Vatican, you enjoy a leisurely walk to the hotel with your guide and have a photo stop at the legendary Castel Sant'Angelo, built originally as a mausoleum, and then used by the popes as a fortress, refuge and a prison.

    Upon your return to the hotel, you have the rest of the day at leisure to enjoy the beauty of Rome on your own.

    *Please note: the Vatican is a sacred religious site thus the dress code for visiting it is applied just as when you visit any church in Italy: no shorts – no uncovered knees and shoulders, no backpacks. Due to religious services St. Peters Basilica may be spontaneously closed, thus entrance to St. Peters Basilica may not be guaranteed.

    Day 5: Departure to Amalfi via Ancient Pompeii
    Following breakfast in your hotel, you check out and meet your private driver for the transfer.

    At the train station you board the train to Naples (1st class tickets are included). Upon arrival your private guide and driver meet you at the station and take you on a scenic sightseeing trip.

    Today you discover the archeological sites of Pompeii, set near the foot of a picturesque mountain. In 79 AD Pompeii, one of the greatest and richest cities of the Roman age, was tragically completely destroyed as a result of the volcanic eruption of Mount Vesuvius.

    During the 2-hour tour of this unique UNESCO World Heritage Site you see the artifacts, city walls and other excavated finds, buried alive under 4 to 6 m (13-20 ft) of volcanic ash almost 2000 years ago, that give you a detailed insight into the life of the city.

    Today you also enjoy lunch with traditional Neapolitan cuisine.
